Project 3

For project 3 in my writing class we were tasked with making our research into a 3D model. I had trouble of thinking of ways to do this at first but as I looked at other projects I came up with the idea of making a board game and having two house that will represent the two different households that I am comparing. The reason I chose this path was it was the easiest that I could think of and it would be something that would attract stressed college students who I was trying to attract at the CSW at my college. My project was appealing to the college student at the CSW because it was painted with spring colors the evidently decided to show up on the same day as the event. The game part also made it more appealing as many of the student are stressed with exams coming up and a fun games is a good stress reliever. The game was a mix of Monopoly and the Game of Life. The board was set up like the game of Monopoly, with stops at the corners that were choice that households make in life and how the outcomes are different depending on the house. In the end I called The Game of Life; Household Edition, Singe vs Dual parent. I also had facts about my research on the sides of board game on paper that were cut out shaped like houses. For the facts I decided to chose a font that was playful and serious at the same time to make it not looking so boring. The game instructions on the other had I put in the type of font that usually find game instructions to make the game seem more realistic. Thinking back at making the project I admitly do not know how it show ethos other than the fact that I myself came from a single parent household and can tell them most of t the information from experience. Other than that and tell them what I found there are no citations. I did have the other three all over the project, my connection to my project and maybe the fact that the single parent house was smaller is the pathos while the facts on the house cards are the logos of my project. The Kairos would be the fact that the number of single parent households are rising and the divorce rate is increasing. Making this project was very different than writing the paper mostly in the area of there being less research. For the this project I could do less research and make the game more realistic and informational about out the different outcomes of life event depending on the household. This was why I chose a game, people could go through life and see the difference between the two households and how the single parent households is at a disadvantage. Now if I was to do this project through bloging I would have to do a different tack completely as my audience would be different and I would have to find a way to make the information interesting without leaving out the important information. I took the last time that was available at the CSW as I had to work so there were not many people left there that cared about my project. The few people that did stopped talked about how they understand as they too were from single parent households and that most of these were true. If I could dot it over I would try to get a earlier time to see if I could of gotten more people that were interested. It was fun overall and I guess having the video that our class make next to us on loop added to the fun of it as it seems that most people loved it.
